C.S. ipad = expensive apple fail.
Already stated by many people in many articles that it will do VOIP. MMS texting hasn't been an Apple issue since day one. It was always due to AT&T. Hell, Europe has had MMS for years. The iPad will allow wireless streaming of files from another computer or network which makes the need of a USB input not nearly as important. What sort of accessories would you want to have on a tablet that you hold in your hand? That's asking for something to snap off. This is not a computer...it's a media platform that does some basic computing needs. Lack of multitasking is simply due to preserving battery life...simple as that. Show me another similar sized product that has the same battery while multitasking and then you have a valid complaint. Please, if you're going to sit there and bash a company and it's products at least make sure you have a clue what you're talking about. Otherwise you look like a complete moron.
